    I think I heard that they were always replicas- but the skull and cross bones in the Captains headboard ARE real. They were given to Walt and he used them in the attraction.

    Re: The Top Ten Most Obscure Facts about Disneyland

    THE UNDERGROUND DISNEYLAND

    Some of this info is already out there but I can clarify some things as far as fact and fantasy goes. I've been in, and will continue to go into all of these areas as part of my job.

    1) There is ONE large tunnel, the one running from underneath
    Innoventions to Ariels meet and greet. This tunnel links a couple of
    basement areas, one under Club Buzz and one under Innoventions.
    Under Club Buzz is a kitchen, cast member break area, storage,
    dressing rooms for the performers, a couple of offices and various
    utility rooms. Under Innoventions is mostly work areas used for training
    facilities cast members.

    2) There is a basement area under Village Haus. Again, a cast member
    break room, kitchen prep area, offices, storage, electrical rooms, etc.

    3) There is a basement area under the River Belle used for storage.

    4) TSI has a basement for Fantasmic. THERE IS NO TUNNEL NOR HAS
    THERE EVER BEEN A TUNNEL TO THE MAINLAND.

    5) There is a basement stockroom under Le Bat en Rouge.

    6) There is a basement area beneath NOS. There is the NOS main kitchen
    and the Westside Diner cast cafe along with the usual utility
    rooms, offices, stockrooms, etc.

    7) There are NO tunnels linking the lands together.

    8) There is a tunnel system connecting the three towers of the
    Disneyland Hotel. THAT IS IT...THEY ARE IN NO WAY CONNECTED
    TO THE PARK ITSELF OR ANY OTHER TUNNEL.

    9) The Grand has an underground area used for deliveries, laundry, etc.
    That area also extends under World of Disney where there is a
    breakroom, offices, stockroom, etc.

    10) DCA does not have much in the way of underground areas. The
    The largest would be the launch bunker for Screaming. Other than
    that there are a couple of sunken electrical rooms, the dressing
    rooms for the Hyperion and a couple of work areas.

    That's about all I can think of right now, I may have missed one or two
    basements but I think I covered the majors.

    Edit....I've intentionally left out such things as the vehicle tunnel that passes under the berm into Storybook Alley as such things hardly qualify as being any part of an underground complex.

    Just remembered, the two halves of the Old Admin building (which is split
    by Primevil World) are linked by a basement consisting of offices, dressing
    rooms, etc. On the basement level you are able to pass underneath Primevil World and go from parkside Admin to Harbor Pointe side Admin ( a tunnel of sorts)

    I read this on the PotC book about the ride and films. Very interesting and creepy! I would have loved to have my skeletal remains be a pirate!

    A few more:
    • Tomorrowland has a teleportation system that links to every other Tomorrowland in the world. Unfortunately, it was deactivated after they accidently intercepted an alien that ate several guests in Florida.
    • Push's last name is Mi.
    • 20% of the characters are part of the zombie workforce. The handlers are there to make sure they don't feed on any children or celebrities.
    • Jungle Cruise is based on the classic Humphrey Bogart movie, Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid.
    • The fireworks are renamed Firedontworks on nights of technical difficulty.
    • Ever wonder what happens after the park closes? The mole people come out from hiding and feed on the trash.
    • Hermit's Day at Disneyland is an official event held every September 31st.
    • If you see a crocodile at Disneyland, don't smile at it. Go ahead and smile at the ones in WDW. They're really alligators.
    • 2% of the characters are genetic experiments created by Bill Nye to develop living toons.
    • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was created after too many of the pack mules became irate after the inclusion of 4 loops in the pack mule track.

    Re: The Top Ten Most Obscure Facts about Disneyland

    I read somewhere that there have only been two movies that have ever had scenes that were shot in Disneyland. One of them was "That Thing You Do", with Tom Hanks. The other film was from the 60's.

    Does anyone here happen to know the name of it? I wish I could recall where I read about this and it has been bugging me.

    The guy who was going into the army wanted one last fling.
    They used an old Mickey head, too. Very period-like.

    How about the old Wizard-of-Bras store on Main St? I doubt the general public knows that lingerie used to be sold on the property!

    I live 2 miles away from Disneyland if Walt would've built it at Riverside and Buena Vista.

    The reason Walt chose to make it Sleeping Beauty castle was to plug his yet to be released feature 'Sleeping Beauty.' So for a few years, they had a Sleeping Beauty castle before Sleeping Beauty was even out in theaters!

    -The Wizard of Bras building has/had the porch out front to keep men happy while thier wives shopped and to keep eyes from accidentally seeing some Non-Disney sights!

    -The Haunted Mansion was completed in 1963...6 years before it opened. From 1963 to 1966 NOS sat as a big empty basement covered by steel beams while Walt paused to work on the NYWF then changed his plans for NOS.

    -Long before New Orleans Square Walt had a New Orleans Street in Frontierland.

    Wow it's amazing...I know lots of "obscure" WDW facts but everything I think of for DL I doubt the "obscureness" of.

    If life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade. Then find someone who's life has given them vodka and have a party.

    I look at you and I see 2 men. The man you are and the man you ought to be. One day those 2 will meet and should make for one hell of a football player!

    If this is torture, chain me to the wall
